Talk Title: Quantifying protein-polyphenol adducts in foods: insights from synthesis of standards and LC-MS/MS analysis

Mahesha M. Poojary is a Food Chemist specializing in Chemistry and Analytical Chemistry. He holds a Ph.D. in Chemical Sciences and is an Associate Professor in Food Protein Chemistry at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

His expertise is studying protein oxidation, the Maillard reaction, and protein-polyphenol interactions using chromatography and mass spectrometry (GC and LC-MS). Mahesha's current research involves improving the quality of dairy and plant-based food products through innovative processing techniques (e.g. UV, ultrasound, cold plasma and microwave treatment) and investigating protein modifications during such processing. Mahesha also works on protein extraction from microalgae, seaweeds and food processing byproducts.
